Team news: Yeovil Town v Blackburn Rovers

BLACKBURN Rovers have made one change for their first competitive meeting against Yeovil Town at a rain-lashed Huish Park.

David Dunn, having scored the crucial third goal in last Saturday’s 3-2 home win over Millwall, takes the place of Josh King.

King and DJ Campbell – who returned to training this week after his arrest and subsequent bail by police probing spot-fixing allegations in football matches – are not considered fit enough for places in Gary Bowyer’s squad.

Captain Scott Dann and his centre-back partner Grant Hanley will be making their 100th appearances for Rovers.

Yeovil, second from bottom in the Championship but unbeaten in four games, make two changes.

One is between the posts as Marek Stech – the hero of the Glovers’ League One play-off final victory over Brentford in May – takes the place of the injured Chris Dunn.

It is the fit-again Stech’s first appearance since August 10.

Liam Davis, meanwhile, replaces Ed Upson.

Referee Iain Williamson inspected the soaking surface at 1.45pm and deemed it playable.

Yeovil: Stech, Ayling, Webster, Duffy, McAllister, Edwards, Ralls, Lundstram, Davis, Grant, Miller. Subs: Stewart, Dawson, Upson, Hayter, Foley, Moore, Morgan.

Rovers: Eastwood, Henley, Dann, Hanley, Spurr, Taylor, Lowe, Cairney, Marshall, Dunn, Rhodes. Subs: Kean, Kane, Kilgallon, Williamson, Judge, Rochina, Gestede.
